    LET BREATHE A LONG TIME Community Ratings 89-91 Good nose, somewhat closed, ripe fruit combined with a barest hint of caramel, broad base of good forest notes enertwined with the fruit. Complex CDP flavors on the palette, dark red fruits, some cigar box, olives. Good acid balance, nice lingering finish. (Much longer and with greater finesse than many of the outstanding Washington State Syrahs others had brought to the tasting) This one needs about 5 more years of cellaring to completely resolve the moderately noticeable tannins. This is not fruit forward so 5 years is probably the max time to hold these
